Q-Tips say: We enjoyed it. Never heard this side of their story. Great acting by John Cusak, Paul Giamatti and the cast. This is not a movie where you go to hear all their famous hit songs. This is a sad story of Brian Wilson who seems to be losing his sanity with the help of his Dr.
Mrs. Q says: Probably could wait and see it as a rental and still enjoy it.
